Super Simple Detailed Dogwood Cards


Welcome back to the Creative Card-iology Team Blog Hop!  February is winding down, and Sale-a-bration is almost over – only one week left.

Have you ever needed a card in a hurry?  I did tonight – I totally lost track of my time this month, and found myself with a blog post due tomorrow morning and no project done yet.  So I went back to one of my favorite Sale-a-bration items, the Detailed Dogwood stamp set (free with $100 order).  The detailed images in this set are perfect for super simple cards using just stamps, ink and paper. 

To keep my project super simple, I used the Basic White Note Cards & Envelopes and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.   I simply stamped the large dogwood image in the Tuxedo Black Memento ink on the front of the note card, then stamped the “Hello There” sentiment from the Softly Sophisticated Stamp Set (part of the Softly Sophisticated Bundle, a free with $100 Sale-a-bration item) underneath the image – and my card was done.  Within 5 minutes or so, I had 4 note cards stamped.  I also stamped the smaller bud/branch image along the left edge of 4 envelopes, and the I was ready to start writing my blog.

Making cards doesn’t have to be a complicated process when you have such beautiful stamps to work with!

And of course, you don't have to limit yourself to just stamps, one ink color and paper.  Add in a few ink colors, cardstock and a couple of tools, and with just a little extra time, you can step up your card a bit with cute fun fold card using the same stamp sets.

Sale-a-bration is a great time to get started stamping if you’ve never stamped before or if your wish list is pretty long!  You get free products when your order is $50 or more.  And if you have a long wish list, you’ll want to take advantage of the starter kit special – get $125 in product for only $99 plus tax and your choice of the the Stampin’ Glass Mat Studio or an additional $30 in product in your starter kit. Check out all the Sale-a-bration specials on my website.

Each month our Creative Card-iology blogging team also collaborates on a tutorial bundle.  With every order you place through my website, you can receive the current month's tutorial free!  If you place an order in the next week, I'll also send you the March team tutorial as well, as I plan to share the details of my note card fun fold using a different stamp set.
